Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc was incorporated in January 1976 in the State of Delaware. The company designs and markets a portfolio of retail-based, premium, global lifestyle brands including Juicy Couture, kate spade, and Lucky Brand. In addition, the Adelington Design Group, a private brand jewelry design and development group, markets brands through department stores as well as serves jcpenney via exclusive supplier agreements for the Liz Claiborne and Monet jewelry lines and Kohl's via an exclusive supplier agreement for Dana Buchman jewelry. The Company also has licenses for the Liz Claiborne New York brand, available at QVC and Lizwear, which is distributed through the club store channel. It maintains an 18.75% stake in Mexx, a European and Canadian apparel and accessories retail-based brand. Its brands are Juicy Couture, kate spade, JACK SPADE, Lucky Brand, and Adelington Design Group. Juicy Couture is the world's most irreverent, fun, and on-trend lifestyle brand for women and girls of all ages. Whimsical, confident, and feminine with an edge, Juicy Couture was founded in Los Angeles by two fashion-obsessed best friends. Known for making the track suit an icon of casual luxury, today Juicy Couture is a global phenomenon with an assortment that spans fashion apparel, handbags, shoes, intimates, swimwear, fragrance, accessories, sunglasses, and baby. Juicy's newest collection, Bird by Juicy Couture, is an elevated assortment that meshes streetwear-chic with pedigreed luxury to create the quintessential wardrobe for the modern, downtown muse. Kate spade is the brand that helps women express their own personal style with incandescent charm and a dash of rebellion. JACK SPADE stands for smart designs and ideas to help men live a layered life. At Lucky Brand, jeans have always been much more than just denim and grommets. Staying true to the rich heritage -and authentic, all-American spirit - of denim, Lucky Brand began crafting great-fitting, vintage-inspired jeans in Los Angeles in 1990, quickly earning the title of 'America's favorite.' The brand also produces apparel, shoes, accessories and jewelry for men and women that are sold at 295 retail stores within the U.S., high-end department and specialty stores, select stores in Canada, and online at luckybrand.com.
